Welcome to HysterSister's Cancer Concerns!!! Sorry to hear about your cancer, but you have just found the best site for info, hugs, and support. I had ovarian cancer, so everything came out. Shortly you will be getting many answers on the pros and cons of such a decision. Are you seeing a gyn oncologist? What was their recommendation?
Best wishes. Keep in touch.

Kept ovaries

Hi,

I had a hyst for stubborn cervical dysplasia on March 11, 2002 and kept my ovaries. I was glad I did...no serious weight gain, no mood swings or night sweats...but the doc found an ovarian cyst during the surgery. I have had them before and they go away on their own...but this one did not go away.

I had a CA125 test to check for cancer antigens in my blood. An average test scores under 35. My results came back 124 and I may be facing more surgery and possibly ovarian cancer.

It is something to think about. If I was you I would request a CA125 test before the surgery. The tests are less than 80% accurate, but at least a guage. If my next CA125 test comes back normal... I want to keep my ovaries! And I am late 40s not yet in menopause.

Good luck. This is a great web sight. The ladies in here are wonderful.

I just read your post and I am a bit concerned. You had your hyster in March and that is when the cyst was spotted. Have you just had the one ca125 reading since that time? Are you getting a retest in the near future? Make sure your doc stays on top of this. Ovarian cancer is often fast growing.
Are you seeing a gyn oncologist? Best wishes and keep in touch.

Of course my surgeon wants to take eveything out. She did say that Stage 1 endo was not really cancer but atypical precancerous cells. She also said Stage 1 is confined to uterus and only Stage 3 would be out side of the uterus. She also said that I still could get ovarian cancer if they took the ovaries. I am concerned about HRT as my primary doctor doesn't believe in using them and I feel I would not get any support for any problems I was experiencing. I also have already tried HRT once before and had lots of problems with no physican support. Basically they said deal with it. Also the surgeon will not be giving me any at the time of recovery and I have been a woman since I was 9 years old. djy

Hi,

Again, I had cervical cancer but my oncologist told me that there was no relationship between cervical and ovarian cancer. I know with early stage cervical they do not normally take the ovaries. I do not know if this is the case with uterine. Why don't you get another opionion or two from gyn oncologists?

Talked with surgeon today and she said that keeping ovaries is not a option with Stage 1 uterine cancer. I understand and can accept her dignosis. djy
